Play ‘Halo Wars 2’ four days early by pre-ordering today

Pre-order ‘Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition’ today and get access to the game 4 days before its official release of February 17, 2017. In addition to early access, you’ll also get a Halo Wars 2 Season Pass digital code, and an exclusive Professor Anders Pack of Blitz cards. More cards mean more tools of war. Use these cards to summon powerful units to battlefield in online matches with up to 6 players, and against waves of computer-controlled enemies in Blitz Firefight.

The heroes of Halo Wars return to find themselves—and the galaxy—in more danger than ever. Following the events of Halo 5, the all-new story is told in action-packed missions set on the legendary Halo destination known as the Ark. Players will strategically command overwhelming firepower in large-scale battles against a terrifying threat facing the UNSC and all of humanity.

You can pre-order the game here for $79.99, which is the digital copy of the game. It was just confirmed that while the physical release is still happening, it will only be happening in Europe. So North American gamers are only going to be able to get their hands on the digital copy.
